How is the term understood in our training courses?
Rhetoric is understood as targeted, verbal and non-verbal communication behaviour between people. The verbal area, articulated by means of the voice, accounts for only a small proportion of the information content that is conveyed. Non-verbal components, such as body language, gestures and facial expressions, account for the far greater share of interpersonal communication.
Through the use of oratory, the audience can be emotionally activated in speech situations, captivated in terms of content and finally convinced. The methods serve, for example, to structure a speech, reduce nervousness and use linguistic ability. You will learn all this in our training courses and rhetoric seminars. Inspire your audience with basic, theoretical skills that specifically strengthen your rhetorical abilities in practice. Experienced trainershelp you to tap your full potential!
